Unique learning experiences

Design and fabrication of
additional classroom space

A recent study revealed that good school and classroom design can have a 16% impact on pupil learning rates. With pressure on classroom space limitations and the requirement to get value for money, the opportunity to create a unique, cost effective and individual space that can enhance the learning experiences for students of all abilities can be achieved by recycling a bus.

We have worked with many schools and community projects to deliver inspiring mobile spaces to increase classroom capacity with many projects having input directly from the staff and students themselves.

Student and staff engagement

The excitement of ‘owning’ projects cannot be understated. Get your whole school interested, imagine the buzz!  As each classroom we create is different and each school is different, we offer a full 3D design of your classroom prior to starting any work. Working with our design team, we will listen to your wish list and develop a solution unique to your needs.

We will discuss everything from how many plug sockets to the fabric on the upholstery to the colour of the floor. Each part, uniquely individual, comes together to create your conversion. As part of the design process, we will also address your power consumption and see what is the best solution. We can offer full solar panels, if that is the green credentials you need or a simple plug – into your existing school supply. We will advise and support you through this process, ensuring that we exceed your expectations whilst making sure we don’t exceed your budget.


We will support and guide you through the whole project. From sourcing the vehicle, the design process and where to safely install the vehicle onsite. Our experience with school projects mean we understand the funding, local authority requirements and how to power your vehicle.
